The prestigious magazine Politico ranks Catalan exiled President Carles Puigdemont as one of the twenty MEPs to watch during the first year of the new legislature in the European Parliament.

The article describes Puigdemont as “a longtime persona non grata in the Parliament, the former pro-independence Catalan leader is now officially an MEP but could see his immunity lifted if fellow lawmakers decide to take action. Spain would much rather Puigdemont return to face trial on charges of sedition after he led a failed Catalan independence referendum in 2017″.

Politico also forecasts that “the most famous Catalan MEP is expected to import his pro-independence fight to the Parliament and defend the rights of his fellow Catalans”.
